Assuming that EBIT is equal to 10 percent of sales, calculate earnings per share under both the debt ﬁnancing and the stock ﬁnancing alternatives at each possible level ofsales. Then calculate expected earnings per share and EPS under both debt and stock ﬁnancing alternatives.
Also, calculate the debt ratio and the times-interest-earned (TIE)ratio at the expected sales level under each alternative. The old debt will remain out-standing.
